It is with much anticipation that I introduce our wonderful new writer for the Breakfast Point Lifestyle Blog. Pamela will be delighting us with her posts in the ensuing months, so stay posted!
The title photo is the last one Pamela ever liked of herself, here is a little about Pamela:
“Born and schooled in Coogee, we moved to the north shore.
After Business College, I worked in Rabaul, New Guinea where I met my future husband. He owned a copra plantation on an island hundreds of miles from the nearest neighbour and civilisation.
I did not see another white woman for almost a year, so waiting for the copra boat to deliver books and mail virtually kept me going. I filled diaries and wrote constantly to friends and family.
We returned to Sydney eventually, had two beautiful sons and many years later, I remarried.
My new husband’s work involved us living in the Blue Mountains. During those years he encouraged me to write. Short stories, articles, some poetry and the ‘great Aussie novel’.
We had ten wonderful years together. He died, too suddenly, too young.
Three years ago, I sold my mountain home and moved to Breakfast Point.
Both sons are married. Their wives are my very dear friends, their children my pride and joy.
Eldest son and family live two suburbs away. Youngest son and family live two blocks away.
Living here is no longer living alone. I am surrounded by the warmth of family, of old and new friends.
And here I am writing again!”.
